womens-skin.jpg The aging of a women's skin is faster than men's skin. This was long suspected. But now, it has been proved to be true by a study conducted by researchers from Germany's Freidrich Schiller University in Jena and the Fraunhofer Institute of Biomedical Technology in St. Ingbert recently.

Study Highlights
a. Researchers used a new laser technology to conduct this study.
b. Infrared laser pulses were used to view the deeper layers of the skin.
c. They studied the effects of photo damage and aging of skin in men and women.
d. It was found that women are more prone to faster loss of collagen than men.
e. This makes the skin weak and hastens the onset of wrinkles and lines.
